I would consider Appetite for the Unnatural. It is good against the mardu decks and also gains you some life. I would tweak the mana balance to include more white sources (for your low mana creatures and Aerial Responder) and add some more life gain. Overall, good deck! Lone Rider  Flip is one of favorite cards.

Fatal Push, not sure if it's too pricey for you but it is definitely worth cheking out. I agreee with Schar17 about the focus. Energy decks can get absolutely nasty, I think that might be your best option. Aerial Responder will be a great friend, as he'll survive the -2/-2 from the Demon, not to mention lifelink. Kambal, Consul of Allocation provides nice drain. Captured by the Consulate prevents a bit of removal. Gifted Aetherborn is a scary blocker and cheap attacker. These are just from the Kaladesh block, you can find some cool stuff in slightly older sets. Welcome back to Magic!

If you're having trouble against copy cat, Thalia, Heretic Cathar in for Aerial Responder seems like the best option. I'd also up the Turn Asides to 4 total, maybe taking out a Sram (legendary rule means 4 is less effective) or Linvala from SB. I suggest this because removal is so prevalent in the current meta.

At any rate, cool build! +1. My first deck ever was very much the Ravnica version of this, so I have a soft spot for UW "aura up and smash face" decks.

Windbrisk Heights is a given, for white weenie decks.

If you want a more human-themed deck (and you already have Thalia's Lieutenant, you could remove 4 Aerial Responder and replace with Champion of the Parish. And you could probably replace a couple of lands with Knight of the White Orchid.

Very good Sram dunk build. I love Aerial Responder and usually he's just too awkward to force fit into a non-dwarf deck. Glad he found a home here.

+1 for originality and finding a good card a place to play

Vampire Groundhawk as he is called. I've also heard Aerial Responder called Vampire Lighthawk, he's another great card.

Yahenni, Undying Partisan is one of my favorite AER cards, I'll be sure the check out your deck.

Thanks for the comments man

A couple things:

  1. Try to get your deck down to 60 cards. Every additional card over 60 needs to be worth it, as it means you aren't drawing what will win you the game.

  2. You have a lot of high-cost, powerful cards. This is good when you have a mana pool to cast them with. But early, you get worked over while trying to get things on the board. Try to refine and get more cards with a 1-3 converted mana cost (CMC) in your deck.

  3. (This was/is the hardest one for me at first. I am still new to making my own decks!) How do you want to win? Pick something and narrow it down. Flooding the board with creatures (usually low-cost with this strategy) and make use of Athreos, God of Passage's ability to return cards to your hand is one.

Another idea is to increase the number of fliers you have. You already have 12 of them, but most are high cost. A couple suggestions: Aerial Responder, Akroan Skyguard, Angelic Gift, Angelic Page, Aven Trailblazer, Basilica Screecher. These are probably not the best suggestions for cards, but just some of a list that have a CMC under 3. Google ideas for a flying deck if you are interested!

If you lower the ratio of high-CMC to low-CMC cards, you can take out a couple lands (maybe about 2-3 of each plains and swamps) and add in other spells.

Hope this all makes sense, it is really late as I write this!!

After looking at your list I came up with these suggestons:

If you would like to see other EDH decks, you can always check the ones I play which are present on my profile page. I like to play with this deck the most of the time. An upvote is always appreciated :)

Have fun on T/O and if you ever need EDH advise, you can always summon me. Glad to help out.
